Economic Studies

A course refers to a specialized study program. It usually takes place on campus but can be delivered online. Courses are popular for people who want to get specific knowledge in one subject.

Economics and administration is a hybrid field in which professionals are trained in both macro and micro economics. Analysis of history and understanding economic principles, along with knowledge of finance, public policy and business topics arm experts in making short and long term recommendations.

 

A country situated to the southern tip of Africa, South Africa, has a rich culture that you will never get enough of while touring or studying here. The languages here include Afrikaner and English as well as Dutch. The campus life of the vast South African University, University of Johannesburg or any other university will be mind blowing. You will love interacting with the Bantus here and the tropical climate of the region.
